Lecture 3// 01/17/18  
 
Guest Speaker: Francisco J Galarte  
 On Trans Chican@s   
 
- Francisco is trying to refute that transgenderism does not exist in chicano narratives, 
refusing to accept the transgenderism is only a white narrative  
- Francisco aims to find these narratives within the chianax community that has 
transgender experiences.  
- The way that chicanx speak about trans experiences does not align with the proper terms 
that need to be used as proper pronouns  
 
Terminology
​:   Trans  Chicana and chicano   Trans- Chicanx   Trans* Chican@   Transsexual  
Transvestite  
Transgender  
 
Transvestite
​: associate with sexual culture, dressing or wearing certain clothes is or can be for  erodic pleasure or work. Usually associate to people in a negative way  
 
Transgender
​: A person whose sense of identity does not correspond with their “birth sex”   
Chicanx
​: non binary to a gender, gender inclusive, and neutral; just saying youre a human that is  of mexican descent   - Remember: a word, such as chicanx does not do the work of fixing issues as sexism, 
patriarchy, etc.  
- Doing the work of gender neutrality   
Transsexuality/ Transsexual  
1. A narrative work, transformation of the body that requires remodeling of life in particular  narrative shape   2. Perceived as “restrictive” category that requires gender-changing people to be silent  about their personal histories as price to access medical/legal procedure for their “own 
well-being”  
a. Are forced to be quiet about their transformation to “avoid unwanted attention”  
background image 3. Often said that people said they “were born in the wrong body” aka “transgender  phenomenon”   a. People found that the way to change/transform their body they had to tell  psychiatrist that they “felt uncomfortable in their body”   b. A system has been made were trans people have to associate a narrative that they  are “uncomfortable with their body” to be able to get medical attention to 
transform  
c. Everyone can be “uncomfortable with body” but with transgender people it is a  narrative they have to use to get medical attention they need, not good situation to 
be in  
Transgender   1. Emerged in opposition to “transexual” is US IN 1960S among self-organized  communities, mostly white/middle class, male bodied individuals who expressed 
feminine components by expressing identity by way they dress to “resist medical, 
psychiatric or sexological labeling of either “transvestite” or “transsexual”  
a. Resisted bc some people want to keep their bodies, or not take hormones, or make  certain alterations but they want control     Medico-legal-psychiatric institutions  - Medical: issues related to access to medical care  - Legal: related to access to legal documentation  - Some places transgenders do not have access to legal documentations bc judge 
does not believe in “transgenderism” or not progressive states 
- Psychiatric: Gender Dysphoria is a diagnosable condition in the DSM seen as a disorder, 
it's a society where people see it as something that can be “diagnosed” and seen as 
“disorder”  
 
Trans  
1. “trans* is meant to break open the category of transgender, transwoman, or transman  
2. Recognized as “an effort” to include non-cisgender identities  
 
What would it be like if everyone had to constantly be talking about their genders or even worse 
their genitals?  
 
LGB..T  
- “Transgender” in LGBT accompanies gay, lesbian, bisexual, etc.  - Transgender is not a sexual identity it is a gender   - Transgender people can be meither heterosexual, gay, bisexual,, lesbian, queer, assexual, 
etc.
